I have a dell 610 notebook with a docking station hooked to a acer 22 inch monitior. For some reason it won't work anymore when I dock it. It just sats no signal when I turn it on. Any thoughts? I checked all the plug in and everythings seems to be hooked up.

It has been running fine in the past. For about a year now.

Can you bypass the docking station and just plug the monitor into the back of the laptop?

I tired that it isn't turning on that way either.

Could it be something in cotrol panel? Do have to turn on somtimes in the menu?

I got it working sort of now. I have it set up on the two monitor setting where I have to drag stuff over to the secondary monitor which isn't bad. But I would like to figure out why it isn't mirroring off my laptop anymore. At least for now I know it works still thru the docking station.
